on benghazi . leon panetta said there was not enough warnings to save the four americans murdered fighting for their lives in libya. >> steve: the defense department needs to know in advance when bad stuff happens. not making that up. >> brian: chairman paul ryan telling americans he will go back to work. >> i am house budget chair and it is part of my job to make this divided government work. >> brian: you can hear the disappointment. the former vp revealing what he will do next and going through election day with mitt romney. "fox and friends" starts right now. >> gretchen: you it is a good day when the floor crew is humming our theme song. >> brian: only one they know. >> gretchen: welcome everybody. petraeus scandal appears to be getting bigger . this is a made for movie situation already. >> brian: it is a movie i don't want to see. >> gretchen: certainly more details coming out. it is many things and now another top commander in afghanistan. general john allen who took over for david petraeus when he kebecame commander in afghanistan. he is under investigation for exchanging thousand
's exhausted, understandably so. leon panetta who come phaout commutes from washington to california he wants out. he's over 70 and wants to row tire. timothy geithner the treasury secretary wanted out a while ago and was pressed to say. i would think in the case of panetta and clinton that republicans will be unhappy to see them go because they are pretty popular up on capitol hill, a lot of respect for both of them. obviously hillary clinton with the libya situation there is some criticism there, generally speaking i think conservatives have been happy with a liberal democratic president having people like hillary clinton and panetta running national security. geithner not as popular with conservatives. and eric holder definitely because of fast and furious and other policies not as popular with conservatives. martha: it race raises the questions in all four of those spots, who do you think are some of the names that we might see tpulg those spots, chris? >> the most interesting one, i guess, is susan rice,s u.n. ambassador was considered one of the frontrunners to be the secretary of state
. >> secretary panetta? >> i'd have to check that. secretary panetta has been traveling. >> as sort after follow-up, does the president see this in general as an unwelcomed distraction at a time when he's just -- was re-elected and has a bunch of priorities in terms of the fiscal cliff and his cabinet? >> i certainly i think wouldn't call it welcome. obviously the -- as i said to ben, the information about general petraeus came to him as a surprise, and he is very appreciative of general petraeus' remarkable service to his country. the president is focused on the agenda he believes is important for this contry. he has to carry out working with lawmakers here in washington. that includes his number one priority, which is jobs and economic growth. on the issues of the approach we need to take to ensure we have the right economic policy, the right fiscal policy to help the economy grow and help it continue to create jobs. he is also focused on his national security agenda. he has great confidence in the acting c.i.a. director. he has confidence in his military and the secretary of defense and defen
was secretary clinton? where was general petraeus? where was director clapper? where is secretary panetta? why was someone out of the loop the one briefing the american people on benghazi? megyn: did you find it odd when the president said take on me when he hasn't had a press conference in eight months and the press corps would clearly take him on? >> i think he was saying he wanted john mccain and lindsey graham to take him on, not the press corps. megyn: we'll pick up on that point and others right after this break, because we wanted a little more time with you, so we squeezed in a little time. remember when you said men are superior drivers? yeah. yeah. then how'd i get this... [ voice of dennis ] ...allstate safe driving bonus check? what is that? so weird, right? my agent, tom, said... [ voice of dennis ] ...only allstate sends you a bonus check for every six months you're accident-free... ...but i'm a woman. maybe it's a misprint. does it look like a misprint? ok. what i was trying... [ voice of dennis ] silence. ♪ ask an allstate agent about the safe driving bonus check. are you in g
secretary leon panetta and steven chu and also ken salazar. even attorney general eric holder and transportation second ray lahood, the only republican left in the cabinet, could be leaving as well. in 2008 obama told "time" magazine he wants his cabinet to be a team of rivals saying, quote, i don't want people who just agree with me. i want people continually pushing me out of my comfort zone. what should we expect this time around? i would bring it to the table. so i think the biggest one people are talking about is who is going to replace hillary clinton. the two names who have voted is u.n. ambassador susan rice and john kerry. i have no problem with susan rice. i think she's fantastic and unfortunate how she's been treated recently. i tell you, john kerry during this campaign has been fantastic in his debate prep with the president. i thought his speech as the dp nc was brilliant, and i think he would be a terrific diplomat. there's concerns that if he was nominated then the senate -- his senate seat would be open and scott brown could have another shot at getting into th
side. i think it was leon panetta who said, we don't want to buy the same course twice. we would be coming up on six or seven times now. we don't want to see necessarily buying into the same the side for the sake of the appearance of progress at the cost of the lives of people. >> of like to make one other very quick comment since the questioner is from japan. japan outspoken and very strong comments on the objection of its citizens are an example to be admired. no, your government has broken out forcefully about the human abuses of the north korean regime, and our government to take a lesson from that. >> the one other point i would make here, i worked very closely with your government. japan also had a special envoy for number three in human rights to works very closely together for a number of years. given that it is highly unlikely at any point send that the regime is going to fall because of any kind of external force can it also does not seem apparent, although one never knows when something like this could unravel, that the elite that is effectively supporting the regi
to go. secretary leon panetta is likely to go at some point although he may stay through the sequestration tlaks which would mean $55 billion to the pentagon. those are big cabinet members and they are likely to go which will take over some dominoes inside the administration as people move up to fill those. inside the west wing, he may have a new chief of staff. that would be his fourth that he has named. these are times when he can look at those working for him. only two cabinet members left in the first four years. he can begin to tailor his staff to what he wants to pursue. host: eric holder the attorney general has said he will stay on. guest: that is right. he has had a mixed record. he has had a mixed relationship with the white house. he would not be the easiest guy to ask to leave. if he wants to stay, i imagine he would probably stay. host: "the wall street journal" says this -- margaret talev, who replaces let's start with hillary clinton? guest: it is a great question. i think the conventional wisdom is right in that there are two candidates that are being look
of defense, do you see leon panetta staying? do we need a change? what do you think? >> well i think that's december national security team and it has been, and i would love to see them stay but i think we all know it is probably not in the cards. that secretary of state and secretary of defense at some point are going to depart. i certainly hope they keep general petraeus on board as a director. jamie: i know you worked closely with him. he has been there the shortest time. thank you so much, general. always good to see you. it is pretty frightening stuff. >> good to see you, jamie. jamie: take care. jon: a lot of threats out there. then there is this here at home. in the wake of superstorm sandy a number about health threats remain. keeping your water clean. the threat of carbon monoxide poisoning. serious problems. what storm victims need to know right now. >> i am very stressed out. i don't know what time, i don't know what day it is, what time it is, trying to feed my daughter. have no access to the outside world. i have no access to the computer, the tv. i don't know what's going on
. the top u.s. commander in afghanistan, john allen. the defense secretary leon panetta says the pentagon has launched an internal investigation into thousands of quote, inappropriate communications between general allen right there on the screen and that woman in yellow, kelly. chief intelligence correspondent catherine herridge live in washington. you almost need like one of those boards to put all the pictures up, catherine. >> reporter: you do rick. beyond the issue of failing to notify congress about the fbi investigation the democratic chair of the senate intelligence committee is threatening to subpoena a report summarizing director petraeus's trip to libya when he personally looked into the fwauz gauze attack. he personally interviewed cia staff on the ground in libya including the station chief and the report may be only in unfinish draft form. the departure was sudden and unexpected even by the director. so far virtually every known investigative thread in the case now leads back to jill kelly, a woman described as an unpaid social liaison for the military in tampa, florida. thi
the president, the vice president and leon panetta were in the white house -- >> rick: they get a feed for that stuff directly into the white house. >> anyone who had access could get this up on a computer. >> gregg: state department, pentagon, white house, c.i.a. they were all likely monitoring the attack. >> everybody could watch it. the question is, who in washington wasn't watching it? on my show tonight, we're going to have another time line because now there is just a new time line released where the c.i.a. is at odds with the time line that was released by the department of defense. this is craziness. we can't get to the truth of it. and every day, every week, there is another obstruction. >> gregg: judge jeanine, thank you very much. we'll be right back [ forsythe ] we don't just come up here for the view up in alaska. it's the cleanest, clearest water. we fd the best, sweetest crab for red lobster that we can find. [ male announr ] hurry in to rd lobster's crabfest! the only time of year you can savor 5 succulent crab entrees, all under 20 dollars. like a half-pound tender sno
east is a mess. look in iran the centrifuges are still spinning. secretary panetta, and secretary clinton are in asia right now. that pivot, are we pivoting away from the challenges and our interests in the middle east, which is really a mess. jon: you worry we are leaving the israelis high and dry on this one? >> it could be. i don't know exactly what is going on with the administration. they have mad said some of the right things in sue mort of supporting israel. we are reaping the fruits of our labors in the middle east. and our policies in the middle east has been a real failure. if we are shipping through the pacific where are we going to have the planes and tanks and things for places like the middle east where we may need them. jon: that is a conversation for next time. >> that's right. jon: thank you. jenna: a fox business alert. take a look at the dow today as we put the numbers up on the jean for. this comes as we get the weekly jobless numbers, which are at the highest level in 18 months. the number of americans filing for first-time unemployment benefits is now at 439,
with a strong relationship with congress. if you look at who served in this job before, leon panetta and petraeus, one thing they have in common is that they both were very, very well regarded on capitol hill. their word was basically gold up there. and if they said something was happening or not happening, or that it would be resolved or gotten to the bottom of, members on both sides of the aisle pretty much took that for granted. so you'd want people that could fulfill that. former congresswoman harman would probably fit into that category, very well respected and a very well known voice on intelligence and military issues. i think the question would be whether she would want to come back from her job heading the woodrow wilson center so soon after she basically quit the congress. john brennan, the president's counterterrorism advisor, would be another choice that i think would probably be very easily confirmed on capitol hill. however, the problem is the president has really come to rely on brennan as his right hand man throughout his presidency on all the issues of counterterrori
: some of the big cabinet members. secretary clinton has said she is going to go. secretary leon panetta is likely to go at some point although he may stay through the sequestration talks which would mean $55 billion to the pentagon. those are big cabinet members and they are likely to go which will take over some dominoes inside the administration as people move up to fill those. inside the west wing, he may the have a new chief of staff. that would be his fourth that he has named. these are times when he can look at those working for him. only two cabinet members left in the first four years. he can begin to tailor his staff to what he wants to pursue. host: eric holder the attorney general has said he will stay on. guest: that is right. he has had a mixed record. he has had a mixed relationship with the white house. he would not be the easiest guy to ask to leave. if he wants to stay, i imagine he would probably stay. says this -- >> this discussion is available on the c-span is video library. we will return to more correction of "cq" "roll call 's" post-election forum. >> reminder th
. >> do republicans fear that much more than the president? >> i think secretary panetta has made it clear that he said senator cane, the cuts are not possible. not only because of what they might do to national security but they're destabilizing and they don't allow planning. you take a lot of money out of the economy with those all defense jobs out of the country. >> josh, do you think this president is going to have a successful a second term as bill clinton did on welfare reform, balancing the budget, balancing it four years in a row? do you think we're going see that type of second term? >> i think it's a little early to say that. i think there's certainty the possible for that. look, as i write in the piece, he's got leverage on the fiscal cliff. i think there's good reason to think that a grand bargain is possible. it's certainly more likely than it was a year ago. we're closer now. the conditions are there for that to happen. so if he were to cap off his second term with historic tax and entitlement reform that would be a big deal. another thing, we're seeing will this already, the
. how important was this? well, the president and defense secretary panetta were very quickly informed last thursday morning when this happened. >> well, if they try it again, presumably barbara, u.s. military jets could scramble and they could get into some sort of dog fight if you will with those iranian jets. how realistic is a scenario like that? >> well, look. the pentagon is not looking for a shooting war with the iranians. top officials are very clear about this. but what were the iranians up to? are they trying to send a signal of more aggressiveness over those critical oil shipping lanes? the pentagon, the obama administration can only let the iranians go so far. if they try this again, that's really the key question. it might have been an unmanned drone, but how far do you really let the iranians go in such a critical economic area, wolf? >> all right, barbara. i know you'll stay on top of this. thank you. let's get back to politics. right now president obama certainly owes his re-election to an extremely well-organized campaign. you know all about the rallies. you know about
